Rex Ryan Car Accident: Jets Coach Issued Warning After Running Red Light [Report]

According to TMZ, Ryan was driving his red mustang when he ran a red light and crashed into another car. The incident caused another car to lose control and crash.
No one was injured in the crash.
The New York Jets confirmed that Rex Ryan was involved in a car crash on January 14 but did not say if he was the cause of the accident. According to the team, Ryan was given a warning by the Bethlehem Police Department but was not given a ticket. The team also said that Ryan was not speeding at the time of the accident.
The details about the accident are a little sketchy at the moment but Ryan may (or may not) answer questions about the incident on Thursday during a planned news conference. Ryan is scheduled to be on hand as the Jets introduce new general manager John Idzik.
Ryan’s name has consistently been in the news this year due to the drama surrounding the quarterback situation in New York. The Jets coach has also managed to grab some headlines due to his off-field behavior. For example: Rex Ryan has a part Mark Sanchez, part Tim Tebow, part wife hybrid tattoo.
